Committees

Each year after new directors have been seated on the Board, the ABGA Board of Directors appoints committees according to need.  Committees are vital to the development and growth of an association. They enhance communication, provide a method of improvement and involve the membership in developing the association.

All members are encouraged to become active and consider volunteering to serve on committees that they have a specific interest in, and/or have skills that can contribute to the fulfillment of the committee’s goals.
